I'd be OK with it as long as I could annoy Jean-Luc.
I wouldn't be surprised if they're already doing this. An Android fork does take time, though.
Wouldn't retailers be required to treat these transactions as "Card Not Present" transactions, meaning that far fewer would accept them?
I believe the liability is increased to the merchant if they just accept a CC number + expiration + CVV, to which accepting this would be functionally equivalent.
my daily BS update
Not having to deal with (nearly as much) BS is why I work for a startup.
Look but don't touch.
God, you mention a possible solution to corruption and people start complaining "but there are so many variables!" Yes, yes there are. Politics is complicated.
If we're going to block every idea because it's not simple enough, we're simply going to be paralyzed, and I'm not a fan of that course of action.
False dichotomy. The government should provide public campaign financing with reasonable rules as to who can access the funds.
That's why I love in-ear monitors, they're the best of both worlds (especially Ultimate Ears with Comply foam tips). Great isolation and very, very good quality (better than you can get with earbuds).
(I understand that they may hurt some peoples' ears; that's unfortunate, but they work for me. I'm not affiliated with UE, Logitech, or Comply.)
The truth has no place in marketing.
Are you a lawyer? In any case, where did you get the idea that federal supremacy is limited to issues where "it's a constitutional question"?
My personal music is FLAC (lossless) or high quality MP3, and Pandora One is 192kbps MP3, so high quality headphones definitely help in my case. Also, earbuds have next to no isolation.
Where I work it's company policy that you can only use one earbud at a time
As a software developer, that policy would be a dealbreaker for me.
Deterrence is not proven.
My point exactly. Most evidence I've seen suggests otherwise, that countries which don't have a death penalty typically have a lower murder rate per capita.
Imagine if the US holds strong and executes the 3 or 4 people it does each year anyway. Then the EU makes good on its threats. Then the millions who need life saving surgery every year can't get the anesthetics they need. Then hundreds of thousands or millions of innocents die to save 3 or 4 murderers.
You mean "to execute 3 or 4 murderers", which is ridiculous and savage.
